mkdir foo && exit

in a shell escape accomplishes this. The lynx browser has always been a file browser that can launch editors or .mailcap helper apps; it doesn't need file/directory creation since a shell already does this.

But I still want to be able to mail a link directly...

How easy would it be to offer the option eg
'Create new directory /home/user/foo/bar/',
which would call up the shell command for creating directories ?

It looks like a small item which has never received notice yet.
